After two years of volunteering and consultation with the West Kent Downs CountrySide Trust our Managing Director Aidan was proudly invited to become a Trustee. We now work closely with the team at the Cuxton & Cobham Woodland project on a range of protection & conservation tasks as well as heading up their social media and fundraising events.
Tree Planting is a huge part of this, removing invasive species such as the pescy-fast growing sycamores and replacing with native species such as Oak, Field Maple, Hawthorn etc is vital work in revitalising the woodland and helping to reproduce the equilibrium bringing with it a range of positive effects from oxygenating trees, water management, ecosystems and familiar habitats.
There is nothing more gratifying, peaceful and soulful than spending a Sunday exploring local woodland reconnecting with the land and your community and offering service to your fellow humans and mother nature! We would welcome anyone to come along and get involved, meet our team and the team at the CCWP and spend some time in the woodland.
The team at SGS have also begun fundraising for their very own event. The Tough Barrow! Currently postponed but still in the pipeline, the team plan to run a full trail marathon with a wheelbarrow to raise money for the trust.
We've set up a Crowdfunding page for the Cuxton & Cobham Woodland Project to support their ongoing work to purchase, protect & conserve 110 Acres of Natural Woodland. on JustGiving. Donations can be made here.
